more about Pi day
Since there are a number of members of this forum who are interested in Pi and calculating digits of Pi, here is an offer from Scientific American that may be interesting to some. I have no affiliation with Scientific American (other than being a subscriber).

Quote from that website: Quote:This year Pi Day is significant because the date, (31415) hour, (9 hr) minute (26 min) and second (5 sec) will reflect the first 9 digits of Pi (3.14159265)! Only nine digits? Why is it 5 seconds instead of 53 or 54? This would reflect the first 10 digits of Pi. Or many more: just think of 9:26 and 53,589793... seconds. ;) Dieter

Perhaps Scientific American was using a TI? Edit: Wikipedia agrees with you: Quote:A sequential time will occur on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 following the sequence of pi.

RE: more about Pi day
I too immediately thought the same thing. We are clearly a bunch of nerds.
